DMX Remains On Life Support, Manager Says "Stop With The Rumors"

It is unclear what has motivated people to continue to make false reports about DMX recovery, but another scare has shaken Hip Hop on Thursday (April 8). Comedian Luenell took the world by storm when she wrote “RIP DMX” on her Instagram Story, complete with a dove emoji that suggested the Rap legend had passed away. DMX has remained on life support since he was admitted into a White Plains, New York hospital after suffering a heart attack reportedly brought on by a drug overdose. It has also been reported that his brain was deprived of oxygen for 30 minutes.

On Tuesday (April 6), Claudia Jordan sent out a tweet that read “RIP DMX” which caused fans worldwide to begin grieving the loss of the rapper, however, it was quickly shared that he was still alive. Another follow-up has been made this evening by DMX’s manager, Steve Rifkind, who has come forward with a video update. In it, he pleads with the public to stop making false reports about DMX’s health.
